Synopsis

Malambo is a contemporary small-town thriller about an Argentinian zapateador folk dancer who has lost his job performing at tourist ranches. When his family is threatened with eviction, he agrees to be trained up for a clandestine malambo contest, knowing the prize money will be enough to save them. What he doesn’t know is that he will be competing against his own brother, that the competition is being financed by his biological father and that, according to tradition, the loser will have his throat slit. Through his veins runs a secret long hidden.
